FG Will Compel MDAs To Reserve Five Percent Employment Slots For Disabled Persons- Tinubu’s Aide

 

 

The Federal Government is set to implement a policy that will compel all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to reserve five per cent employment slots to persons with disabilities across the country.

The Senior Special Assistant to President Bola Tinubu on persons with disabilities, Mohammed Abba-Isa, disclosed this in Damaturu, Yobe State capital, at a meeting held with disabled persons and other stakeholders after his appointment.

He mentioned that his office is working closely with the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to ensure persons with disabilities are empowered, in order to reduce the number of those roaming the street to beg for alms.

“All these MDAs must reserve 5 per cent for persons with disability because the only way we are going to caution impacts on persons with disabilities are through employment and empowerment,” Abba-Isa said.
